The Truth About Lies Movie Trailer

4 March 2017

Odette Annable finally makes a return to the big screen this summer in the indie, "The Truth About Lies" starring alongside Fran Kranz, who plays Gilby, a man down on his luck and who is having a meltdown having just been fired from his job, lost his apartment in a fire and his girlfriend gave him the boot. And it's only Wednesday. Now, at the ripe old age of thirty-something, he is forced to move in with May, his booze-swindling man-obsessed mother. This is the last straw. Gilby's life is bleak until best friend Kevin drags him to a family get-together, where he meets Rachel played by Obette Annable, Kevin's very beautiful but very married sister. Rachel is the very thing Gilby needs to get his life back on track. Desperate to impress her, Gilby starts to weave a web of lies; one bigger than the next. Now in a sticky mess, Gilby is forced to face the uncomfortable truth about himself before he can find a way out of his very own Lies.

The film was partly shot in Manhattan with locations such as East 24th Street between Lexington Avenue and Park Avenue, and West 49th Street between 8th Avenue and Broadway being used. Areas of Brooklyn were also used such as North 7th, 10th and 11th streets as well as Wythe Avenue between South 8th Street and Broadway. The film is set for release in August 2017, though it is only likely to be shown in the United States.

Actor Fran Kranz is perhaps best known for his collaborations with Joss Whedon in the critically acclaimed films The Cabin in the Woods and Much Ado About Nothing as well as Whedon’s Fox sci-fi series Dollhouse.
